The YMCA Challenger Series brings together the best players from across the greater Auckland area. It’s an opportunity to be a part of this competitive league, fast becoming the ‘go-to’ competition for aspiring young talent, young adults in careers, school leavers and post-college players. It also provides a one-stop-shop for scouts and agents looking for emerging regional talent.
YMCA CHALLENGER SERIES
WHERE IT ALL STARTED...
Founded in 2019 with a single idea to provide a basketball competition to incorporate a club’s structure model The Northern Clubs Basketball League (NCBL), The YMCA Challenger series is now seen as a leader in this area of sports.
The founders of the competition Elsdon Yee, Chandra Suryo, David Thomas, and Terry Robinson wanted to provide a structured basketball competition that would attract families, communities, and sports recruiters to watch and enjoy Auckland basketball on a Saturday night.
